Between Releases

Fallen is out in the US but not yet out in the UK, meaning that this two-week period is an odd sort of limbo where all of my US readers have been able to read the book but my UK readers haven’t.  So here are various bits and pieces in the meantime.  

Fallen’s had time to start getting reviews now, and they’re extremely positive on average.  Looking at the receptions of my past books, I’ve started recently to work out some theories about what my readers tend to prefer, and so far, Fallen’s reaction seems to be confirming them.  Here’s a selection of some of the earliest reviews:  Geeks of Doom, I Smell Sheep, and PrimmLife.  (Note:  don’t read these if you haven’t yet read the book!)

I occasionally get people asking if this site is going to have any online forums or similar.  The answer’s no (I do all the website admin myself, and managing a forum is way too big a time sink) but if you’re looking for an online discussion community, probably the best one is the Alex Verus sub on Reddit.  It’s still small, but it’s growing.

And on the topic of Reddit, my AMA is coming up one week after the UK release date, on October 17th.  If you want to ask me any questions about Fallen or anything else, come along and say hi!

    Afraid to write anything until our English friends get a fair shot at reading the book. However, what I will say is buy and read this book!

    Might be my (new) favorite in the series so far.

    I was only able to slow myself down enough for _Fallen_ to last two evenings. The closest to negative thing I can say is I wanted much more.

    Superb and subtle what you are doing. Best use of first person I can remember. Great work!

  4. I just finished “Fallen”–DOUBLE WOW! I don’t wish to give away plot lines;however,I will say, I didn’t want the book to end. Benedict Jacka is a sensational writer, he figured a way t revitalize his series, and until the UK joins us, I’ll say no more.

    Not going to lie, the main question I’ll be asking is… WHEN’S THE NEXT ONE!!!???

    Maybe I’ll have something of substance before the 17th.
